No hidden code to cypher

as ink on cotton stained

a neon sign it blinds the truth

is it easy to walk away?

Be direct this is no riddle

without an answer in a rhyme 

gaze upon the mirrored reflection

no crystal ball through time

Seniors now for once were youth

do we feel exempt?

denial devised to sacrifice truth

I hear the echoes of the steps


Amidst youth or mid life strides, it is very easy to push the truth back out of the way replacing it with myths that growing old is so far down the road; the truth is, it is on our back porch, and we will be stepping down placing our feet on the same path of life’s fragility. 

Let’s join our voices in fighting for change, in creating that very important communication concerning end of life care, and the dignity, respect, privacy and compassion that are not only deserved but is crucial for the quality of life in seniors twilight years when they are taking their final steps on this earth.

For every like comment and share you are helping with this awareness. Thank you ❤

Direction (Memory of Yesterdays)

Today I walked through a memory of yesterdays

Recalling thoughts of a tomorrow that would forever change my path,

Remembering the hills and the valleys that brought me to this crossroad

Thankful for the direction that my heart chose to take on as a journey.


No doubts plagued me as the visions of courage led the way

Every tread fell in line ~ the pathway dodged by steppingstones of progress,

Mindful prayers of direction, through trials and blessings that would calm my soul

The core source of faith erased fear that enticed and tugged at my mind.


The inner beauty of peace ~ ones soul set free reaching the plateau of grace

Bursting with adoration and dedication to the emancipator of my very existence!

Breaking free now from fetters and weights that chained my bestowments ~

In honor and submission I lay them at your feet!
